Running a business can bring creativity, struggle, and rewards into your life. This is why pursing your passion is crucial in order to have a successful organization. Also, it is important to encourage the youth to pursue their dreams and a “go getter” attitude. According to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, local high school students have been learning about entrepreneurial skills at the University of La Verne.
From June 26 through July 15, fifty-two students from Covina-Valley and Pomona Unified and Chaffey Joint Union high school districts will be staying in dorms and getting the college experience through the university’s REACH summer business camp. This is the sixth year the university has offered the camp, free to students and funded by a federal grant and support from businesses, civic organizations, and individuals. The program gives the youth the unique opportunity to come up with ideas for a business on their own, as well as develop a plan for it.
The structured curriculum includes guest speakers from local businesses and field trips. Students will be exposed to various subjects within the business field by professors from the institution. These include management, marketing, economics, finance, business ethics, creating a business website, presentation skills, and entrepreneurship. Students will have to consider licensing, how to make a profit, and think about running the business in an ethical way. At the conclusion of REACH, students will present their plans to a panel of judges for a chance to win $1,000.
